Prioritize yourself! – skip to the bottom for crisis resources.
when I was brainstorming name ideas for this blog i tried to think of the misconceptions people have about mental health. I worried that people would misunderstand the name and be offended by it so, I checked in with some close friends of mine to see what they thought about it and they gave it a big thumbs up!
Many of us who are struggling require time to focus on ourselves and get our minds stable and back on track. battling mental illness and needing to take time to care for ourselves though is not selfish although we may feel like it! the meaning behind the name SELF-ISH is that we can focus on our selves and the “ish” or in my terms “the shit” we are dealing with and prioritize it.
I hope that this blog can help people find resources that are hard to find other places. I know there have been many times i have been searching for a type of support or answers and not been able to find the help I needed. There have been times when i feel i am in a crisis but I’m supposed to be at work in less then an hour and the anxiety in me is so strong and the stress rises because I don’t know how to handle the situation. this blog is for those moments, the things that people don’t often share about or feel they can talk about but need answers for.
side note: my blog will most likely not be grammatically correct, writing is not a strength of mine but i am writing anyways because although it may not be perfect grammar it may help someone.
